I wasn’t sure what to expect when I bought these, and one of my friends said, “Oh those are mousepads.” I got them, and they smelled like rubber, worse than gym gloves, but I’m sure that will fade quickly. I used them a bit and found they were sort of hard to use because they were larger than the circumference of the bar. They work very well though when it comes to gripping, and my hands don’t get pinched by the weights anymore. I’d be interested to see how the hard (and foam?) ones compare.
